The CancerAid app was the one place I wrote down all my symptoms and how I felt. Since I always have my phone with me it saved me from having to remember every fortnight what I needed to say to my oncologist.
"As her champion, this app enables me to see her daily symptoms which is very helpful. We speak everyday by phone or text however I was probably only hearing half of her symptoms. This is also a great tool for Dr’s appointments as you often forget important information."
“CancerAid was extremely attractive for the reasons that I felt empowered and in control to face cancer and I could look at the information remotely”
